we are taking your calls this morning for about the next 15 minutes or so on buffalo's that will begin for over 650,000 civilian department of defense employees. babas next from baltimore, maryland, on our republican line. caller: hi, how are you? have ain maryland, i number of friends who are defense department employees. a sister in law and several friends who are getting these furloughs. i am not entirely happy about this but the reality is that sequestration is law like the affordable care act. a law, it is a lock, -- we will have to live with it. either one of those is not a good thing.
